You have until May 22nd-next Monday-to register to vote
More people didn’t vote than voted for any single party in the last general election. If you didn’t vote then, your vote could change this country.
Registration is quick and easy. You will need your NI number, which you can find on payslips, HMRC communications or DWP documents addressed to you. Other than that, it’s just a matter of giving your name, address and date of birth. It doesn’t compel you to do anything, but it gives you the option to have a say. You might as well do it. If you want help with it, you can go to The Isobel Centre in Newport, any library, or there is an event in Ventnor this Saturday, (20th) at the Central Car Park, from 10:30 to 11:30.
Download the Register to Vote (No Fixed Address) form here. Then, find your local electoral registration office here, using any postcode within your area (try the library or post office postcode).
